Three to represent Wauseon Trio of matmen advance to state, Indians place second as team at district By RANDY ROBERTS Expositor Sports Editor

MARION - Three Wauseon wrestlers will make the trip to Columbus on Thursday as Wade Hodges (113), Dalton Nicely (138) and Zane Krall (220) have advanced. As a team, the Tribe finished second behind St. Paris Graham for the team title. The Falcons scored eight district titles and had 242 points. Wauseon had 112.5 and Clyde was third with 106 points. Nicely and Krall each won district titles. “The three wrestlers we did qualify had outstanding tournaments,” said Wauseon coach Mike Ritter. “Dalton and Zane were both district champs and Wade was a strong third. That’s the first time we’ve had multiple district champs in the eight years I’ve been here. I’m so proud of those guys.” Nicely scored a fall in 2:26 to open the tournament, then reached the semifinals with a 6-4 sud-

den victory win over Luke Cramer. He added a 9-4 decision over Shelden Struble of Bryan and a 6-5 win over Cameron Campbell of Sandusky Perkins to claim the championship. “Dalton had a pretty tough road to the finals,” said Ritter of Nicely. “He had to face two wrestlers who he’s faced before, but have always wrestled him tough. He rose to the occassion and then cranked it up a notch in the finals.” Krall opened with pins in 31 seconds and 5:21 to reach the semifinals. It took a tough 5-2 win over Tyler Carrow of Medina Buckeye to reach the finals, where Krall dispatched Billy Ward of Clyde with a 12-4 major decision. “Zane had a really tough semifinal match against a kid from Medina Buckeye,” added Ritter. “He won an overtime match to put himself in the finals against a top-two ranked wrestler from

Clyde who was undefeated. Zane just crushed him.” Hodges lost in the semifinals then battled back to take a third-place match, a 6-2 win over Dalton Howard of Edison. “Wade lost a close match to a Bellefontaine wrestler in the semifinals,” continued Ritter. “He battled back to win a match at the end of regulation in his go-to match, then beat a returning state qualifer from Edison to take third.” Zach Morrow (120), Cody Pontious (126) and Aaron Scheutte (160) all wrestled in fifth place matches. “Even with all those Wauseon’s Zane Krall (facing) won the district championship at 220 heartbreaking losses, we pounds. finished the tournament as district runners-up,” finished Ritter. “To do that, it was a total team effort. We took 12 kids to the tournament and each and every one of them played a big part in our second place finish. We haven’t placed that high at a district tournament since 1996.”

Lady Blackbirds win 44-38 in overtime

Only two lead changes in entire game By NORRIS LEDYARD Expositor Staff Writer

The Lady Blackbirds lead early and often over the Toledo Area Athletic Conference champion Green Bears from Ottawa Hills. In the end, Pettisville won an overtime thriller, 44-38 to advance in sectional play over Ottawa Hills. The six point lead Pettisville held late in the fourth quarter melted away like this winter’s snow as the Green Bears mounted a 10-6 charge to a 36 all tie in regulation. From there, Ottawa Hills’ offense sputtered to only two foul shots in the overtime period as Kaitlin Nofziger hit two field goals and a free throw to advance the Lady Blackbirds. “This is a good Ottawa Hills team we faced tonight,” said Pettisville head coach Jason Waldvogel. “It is a game of runs and the Green Bears really came alive down the stretch. This win is a measure of our team defense. “Ashlyn Bontrager did an exceptional job on their leading rebounder (6’ Haley Jarecki). She can easily grab 25 rebounds a game and Ashlyn did some tough work tonight. Lexie King, Lauren Frey and (Audra) Klopfenstein all did a terrific job inside against a talented opponent.” When the action could have gone in favor of Ottawa Hills, Tanner Hostetler was down on the floor and batted the ball to her teammate to break up a potential steal in the third quarter. The instinctual team play of experience showed for the Lady Blackbirds at both ends of the floor. “These players understand how to play the game and how to play as a team,” said Waldvogel. “This is tournament play and the play is more physical. My staff has confidence in all our players. We were prepared and came out ahead at the end.” While the Lady Green Bears won the opening tip to regulation play, they could not cash in on the opportunities. The Lady Blackbirds maintained defen-

By the time Ottawa Hills head coach Sean Mercer could call time, the Lady Blackbirds jumped out to a 13-3 lead with 3:30 left in the first quarter.

Bontrager hit both of her free throws at the 3 minute mark to make the score 34-31. Arnos immediately drained a deuce to draw Ottawa Hills within one, 34-33.

Vikes win big in sectional final By DREW STAMBAUGH Expositor Editor

BOWLING GREEN Evergreen built a big first quarter lead and never looked back en route to a Division III girls basketsectional title ball Saturday night. The Vikings topped Elmwood 62-39 after scoring 21 points in the opening period. With the victory, Evergreen moves on the district play at Anthony Wayne High School in Whitehouse. They will face Lake at approximately 8 p.m. Thursday in the second game of a doubleheader. The teams traded buckets to start the game before Brittany Herr nailed a three pointer. Lauren Langenderfer followed with a drive to the hoop for a 7-2 lead. Elmwood responded with buckets from Brittany George and Tori Hillard to cut the deficit to one point. But the Vikings would take over from that point. Taylor Babcock and scored before Herr Langenderfer sank four straight free throws to push the lead to 15-6. Marissa Swavel stopped the Evergreen run with a basket. But the Vikes continued to build the lead. Babcock nailed a jumper and Kendalyn Noe scored off of a steal for a 19-8 lead with 1:25 remaining in the opening quarter. Evergreen took a 21-10 lead into the second. The Vikings picked up where they left off to start the second. They scored the first 10 points to increase the lead to 31-10. Babcock hit a jumper and Herr connected from long distance. Then Carly

Langenderfer added two from the charity stripe and Marvin scored for a hefty 22

point cushion. The Royals finished the quarter with five points, but the Vikings still held a comfortable 35-18 advantage at the break. Evergreen continued to pull away in the third, giving the Royals no hope of a comeback. Langenderfer poured in

22 points to pace the Vikings. Herr chipped in 11 and Babcock 10 for the Vikings. Sierra Beckford, who had 21 in the sectional opener against Swanton, was frustrated by the Evergreen defense, but finished with a team high 11 points.

EDGERTON - Delta’s swing through the GMC started with a 59-50 loss to Edgerton on Thursday. The win by the Bulldogs gave them their first 20-0 regular season in school history. One bad break that hurt the Panthers came in the waning moments of the third period. Down by two, Delta was playing for a potential trying shot. Instead, they turned the ball over and Brody Flegal hit a trey at the horn that put the Bulldogs up 43-38. “We want the last shot,” explained Delta coach Cory Sprow. “Those are those big buckets at the end of quarters. We’ve got to finish quarters out. We needed that last shot. Whether we make it or not, we keep it out of their hands. We keep it a two or three point game instead of five.” The last big run for Edgerton came at the free throw line. Up by four, Edgerton’s Ben Riehle and Jacob Adams split free tosses to start the run. Adams added a three point play, and technical foul free throws from Nathan Stark were good to extend the lead. Start added one more three seconds later and the lead was up to 5644 with 2:14 left to play. “We answered quite a few runs,” added Sprow. “The lead went back and fourth a little bit. It seemed like we were always a possession down. They made the last run and we didn’t capitalize and we didn’t get our shots to fall.” Delta got baskets from Garlinger and Green late but it was too late as Edgerton finished a perfect season with a 59-50 win.

She has long arms and great hands.

She was catching some tough passes in there. We did a great job of stemming the tide and rallying the troops. We hung on. They throw it up to Abby. They do exactly what they should do.

Smith advances to state

Expositor Sports Editor

DEFIANCE - Delta pulled away from Tinora down the stretch to earn their first sectional title in basketball on girls night at Saturday Defiance. The Panthers won 5344 and will play in the first district semifinal at Kalida on Thursday against Coldwater. With the game tied at 41 and 5:27 still showing on the clock, Delta’s defense came to work. They forced five Tinora turnovers and held the Rams to just three points and pulled away. Senior Kirsten Fruchey led the way for Delta. Her only five points on the night came in a quick spurt that allowed the Panthers to pull away. “Kirsten did a great job on the defensive end,” said Delta coach Ryan Ripke. “Offensively, she's our floor general. We want her out there as much as possible.” Haley Timmons did a great job keeping Tinora in the game. She scored two baskets in the paint late in the third period to pull her team back against Delta. “That surprised me,” admitted Ripke about the offensive play of Timmons. “Everything that I have seen and heard is that she isn't much of an offensive threat. She was tonight. It's not she did it against a smaller girl. Hats off to her, she played a good game offensively and defensively.” The play of Victoria Burdo carried the Panthers in the first half.

Swim coaches needed

Kinsey Smith, a junior at Archbold, will return to the state gymnastics meet after winning the district meet on the floor with a 9.25 and the bars with a 9.40. She also advanced in the vault with a third place score of 9.175 and she was also second in the all-around. The state meet will be held at Hillard Bradley High School on Saturday.

Defense saves Indians By BILL BRAY Expositor Sports Writer

Friday night this season's version of the Wauseon Indians gathered up their eighteenth victory of the season with a hard-fought 34-27 win over the always tough Holgate Tigers. The Indians and Tigers always hold each other to fewer points than the season average by a long shot. Holgate is more of a tactical team that uses defense as their strong suit. Friday night was no different as the Indians had to muster all their strength and abilities to come away with a fourth quarter surge that led them to their 18th win of the year against just two losses. The Indians dominated the first eight minutes with a 13-7 advantage. Wade Wooley scored the game's opening basket before Holgate tied the score only to see it evaporate with a bucket by Tre Henricks as the Tribe moved up 4-2. Wooley scored on a put back off a Henricks miss as the Indians went up 62. Holgate came through with a shot from beyond the arc to quickly close the gap to 6-5. But Colin Dietrich was able to answer back with a Wauseon threepointer to put Wauseon back up 9-5. Wooley pulled down a rebound off a Tigers' miss. Henricks and Alex Woten missed shots, but Wooley was there to put-back Woten’s miss to give the Indians a 11-5 lead. The 7-0 run came to an end with a Tiger basket as the time expired. The Tigers came back to outscore the Indians in the second quarter, though both teams were closed down offensively, Holgate scored the quarter's first two baskets to narrow the Wauseon lead to 13-11. Wooley kept his team out front as he scored on two free throws at ten 2:17

mark for a 15-11 advantage. The two teams switched baskets over the last two minutes as the Indians held a 17-13 lead at the break. The Tigers were finally able to tie the game at 17-17 as they scored the first four points of the third quarter. Colin Dietrich matched a Holgate foul shot, but the Tigers got the next basket as they were up by a 20-18 count with 2:23 left in the third. The quarter ended with the game tied 20-20 and the all important fourth quarter left to decide the winner. Senior Alex Woten proved to be the spark in the final eight minutes that the Indians needed. Behind Woten's athleticism and his ability to play the game of basketball, the Indians pulled off the win. The senior scored the first point of the quarter after being fouled at the 4:18 mark. He then followed a Wooley block with a conventional three-point play to put Wauseon up 24-20. The Tigers continued their aggressive play though with a three-pointer to close the Indians lead back to one point at 2423 with 3:10 left.

HICKSVILLE - The Wauseon Lady Indians gave it their best effort but came up short 35-29 in a Division II sectional title game against the Napoleon Lady Wildcats. Two minutes and thirty seconds passed before Napoleon could find the bottom of the basket with a make by McKenzie Myles to close the gap to 3-2. Bailey Creager was fouled by Courtney Smith as she made the first of two shots as the Indians hung tough with a 4-2 lead. It wouldn't be until the 2:36 mark when Napoleon would tie the game at 4-4 with another Myles shot. Creager put Wauseon back in front on a nice dish by Quincy Brock. Over the final 1:27 neither team hit another shot as the Indians took their close 6-4 lead into the second quarter. The Indians went back in front 9-7 on two Annette Stidham foul shots after being fouled by Kayla Gerken. On Napoleon's next trip back down the court Wauseon's Hailey Archibeque sent Miller to the line. She was good on the first of two shots as Wauseon kept their slim 9-8 lead. Napoleon began to pick up speed over the last four minutes of the quarter. A three by Myles and a jumper by Miller forced Wauseon to take a timeout with 3:16 remaining and Napoleon leading 139. There was no more scoring until a Myles foul shot with 1:13 left gave the Wildcats a 14-9 lead. Alyssa Reed broke the 60 run with a tough basket as the Indians moved to within 14-11. Napoleon then scored the final three points of
